Harbin Polarland, Harbin

3.7
#1 of 6 in Zoos & Aquariums in Heilongjiang
Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
Experience life at the poles at Harbin Polarland, a theme park and animal observation center. See and learn about animals that live at both poles, including polar bears, penguins, arctic wolves, and arctic foxes. Themed areas above and below water allow you to see some of the regions' famous wildlife against chilly looking backdrops, and learn about their behavior in their natural habitat. The bustling underwater environments have a particularly believable look to them, with atmospherically lit glass observation tanks fitted with props to resemble a deep-sea dive.

  • Oceanarium himself has made no impression. Variety of fish and animals. But give interesting views. Before visiting the stands show hours: you can catch a few in a row. Especially I advise you to get to the address by the belugas.

  • About this Aquarium I learned by accident when went out of the Park, which travelled by public transport: moving across the River on a bus just one stop released: stood some machine. Because I didn't know how to go (it was not clear on the map), then went to this transport (about 10-15 m), back returned to public transport on foot. The cost of a ticket to the Aquarium not exactly cheap, but it's worth a visit! Really liked it. On the schedule presentation are held: the sooner you come, the more you'll see (I was with 11:00). Sorry, of course it was a polar bear on a blue background (((

  • Great show. HOWEVER it concerned me that the Beluga whales only had a VERY limited enclosure as with the Polar bears.  more »

  • Concentration camp for animals! That not all can be expected too much in terms of animal welfare in China, should be so well known. Because the Zoo but has recruited to be worldwide, focusing on polar animals, the only one I wanted to give still a chance of the thing and was horrified. In a windowless bunker without any sunlight even beluga whales, polar bears, seals and wolves eke their sad existence in too small cages here (2 polar bears at about 25 m square, the large belugas in a tiny pool of perhaps 20 m length, where they could swim only loops) on a concrete floor without any structures or hiding places, glaringly illuminated by artificial light. To an annoying time sound through a terrible kitsch music at a volume that the eardrums to fly out one. And, although Harbin would be ideal with its environment (only about 90 frost-free days a year) for a Polar Zoo with generous welfare outdoor enclosures. In addition, you can visit this unique Dungeon for animals for the legendary exorbitant price of about 20 euros apiece. Please is not the same there as I, saves you this sad sight, and promotes this facility not even with your entrance fees.

Where to stay in Harbin

South of the Songhua River, you'll find the bulk of accommodations in Harbin. In a cluster close to Zhaolin Park, a number of modern hotels, a few guesthouses, and other budget-friendly options along the less traveled streets cater to a range of travelers. Look for hotels occupying old Russian-built architectural landmarks, with some particularly notable ones located across the Nangang District.
